U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is expected to arrive in McAllen on Monday night.
Napolitano is expected to tour several U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities in the Rio Grande Valley.
Details about her visit have not released but she TMs expected to meet with several law enforcement agencies on Tuesday.
One of those meetings will be with the McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez, who would not go into detail about what he plans to speak to her about.
